Classes

Pre Class Assessment


Prior to joining any classes at the studio you will be invited to attend a pre class assessment which is a 45 minute appointment. This appointment is essential to assess health status, medical history, needs and requirements as well as reasons behind attending Pilates. You will be taken through a postural assessment whereby we will assess posture, muscle tightness/over activity and any weak muscle groups. Information gained from your postural assessment will be shared with the Pilates teachers for the purpose of planning and tailoring your classes and if needed adapting exercises to make sure they are as suitable for you as possible.

This is essential so that we can provide the best level of care and instruction and so that you can gain the most from your class. Finally, we take you through the key principals of Pilates at the end of your assessment so that you’re doing the exercises effectively. Without proper instruction or knowledge, Pilates will be of no major benefit, however with the right guidance you will learn how to isolate the deep core muscles to ensure you are gaining maximum benefit.

Prices

Pre-Class Assessment is £45 (Please note anyone with no prior experience will be required to do a 6 week beginner course before being able to join any class.)

 

Mat Classes


Pilates focuses on stretching and strengthening the whole body to improve balance, muscle strength, tone, flexibility and posture, however a larger component of Pilates teaching is to strengthen your ‘core’ muscles.  Most of us will at some point in our life develop poor posture, back or neck ache or other musculoskeletal pain. For many of us, that pain could be prevented by considering how to correctly utilise our ‘core’ muscles.  Once you’ve have learnt this, doing it correctly starts to come naturally which then reduces the load on your joints, ligaments and muscles.

The moves and postures are usually performed with body weight aloneon the ground using an exercise mat and small pieces of equipment such as resistance rings, balls and bands. Even without added equipment, the workout is challenging and provides great toning benefits.

At Clinic Equilibrium, we keep our classes small with a maximum of 8 clients, allowing our instructors to give the highest client care.

Mat work is a great option for beginners because of its emphasis on learning how to control your muscles during exercises.

Reformer Classes


The next challenge for all Pilates fanatics is reformer Pilates. The reformer involves added resistance created by the pulley and spring system which can provide a more challenging strength and endurance workout than matwork. It may also produce visible results sooner. The reformer’s many attachments increase the range of modifications that can be made to the exercises, and allow additional exercises beyond what can be done on a mat. This capability, combined with the support afforded by the resistance the machine provides, allows people with limited range of movement or injuries to safely do modified exercises allowing accelerated recovery times.

Our Reformer classes have no more than 6 people in a class so we can give 100% care and attention and the class sizes are small enough to adapt exercises accordingly to each individual ability and fitness level.

Aerial Classes


Aerial Pilates combines the skill of physical training with movement therapy. It is essentially Pilates-in-the-air and our certified instructors will guide and support you through a series of fluid and strength building movements.

Aerial Pilates draws from flexibility training, yoga, strength training and acrobatics. It is not only a fun and dynamic way to lose weight and stay fit but also a great training tool for athletes, dancers and physio rehabilitation for those striving for better mobility.

At Clinic Equilibrium we take the classical exercises from the mat, tower and reformer and adapt them into the hammocks for a muscle-burning workout that will challenge your strength and stability whilst decompressing your spine.

Our Aerial Pilates classes have no more than 6 people in a class so we can give 100% care and attention and the class sizes are small enough to adapt exercises accordingly to each individual ability and fitness level.

Mum and Baby Pilates Classes


Our postnatal Pilates classes are all about mum regaining her inner strength, flexibility and rediscovering her tummy muscles while baby can join her while she exercises.

The classes are very relaxed and you are welcome to bring play gym / bouncer etc.

We have 2 mummy and baby Pilates classes: Mummy and Baby Matwork Pilates and Mummy and baby Reformer Pilates

The matwork class incorporates lots of tummy, pelvic floor and bottom strengthening as well as mix of stretches for the back and legs and some balance work.

The reformer class is more semi-private with up to 6 and incorporates the use of the large equipment. With the added resistance of the machines and the extra individual attention this class is the perfect way to rediscover your muscle strength and get back to shape quicker.

Our Mummy and baby Pilates classes are led by a healthcare practitioner and Pilates specialist. You can attend even if you are suffering from any conditions such as Pelvic Girdle Pain, SPD, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome or non-pregnancy related muscular conditions.

All classes are suitable from 6 weeks postnatal and can be joined at any time with flexible booking.
